One Room Challenge – Week Four

download

Week four of the One Room Challenge, and we’re chugging along.  I’m a little worried we won’t be finished on time.  The wallpaper was delivered and like I suspected the buffalo check print is too large for the small space.  Onto Plan B.  I couldn’t let go of the black & white, though, and found this speckled dot pattern.  Eeeeek.  I can’t wait to hang it up.

We made so much progress over the weekend.  Everything is installed except the bench, trim, and hooks then I’ll paint everything a crisp white.  The hardest part of this project has been measuring and building the shelves.  After discovering the wall is slightly uneven it took more time than planned to make everything even.  Installing the bead board was a piece of cake so it balances out.  Now onto those progress pics!

The one thing I have yet to find is a light fixture.  We have a can light to convert into a pendant, and everything I like is on backorder for months.  I found this pendant light at Home Depot and find the casual industrial vibe could work.  Since the narrow hallway is a bit dark, I was leaning towards a glass fixture to enable more light to shine.  I’d love some ideas and suggestions if you’ve used a can light conversion kit you liked.

Pressure is on to wrap this project up in the next two weeks.  I tend to work best under pressure – I won’t be surprised if things aren’t finished until the last possible day.
